As a gluten free customer I found this one of the best hotels I have been too(stayed in many) their catering and choice offered was excellent. the staff I thought were...

Stayed here in January for almost a week , having stayed here before i understood that the building and contents are not up to 21st century scrutiny , however all of that can hopefully be washed away with the level of service . One bad point to clear away , the hotel and bedrooms are too damn hot , cool...

The common areas were nice, room was fine & clean, shower was pretty tricky to get a decent temperature from but otherwise we were happy. Where I was very impressed was with the customer service. We were allowed our dogs everywhere but the restaurant. We were given the option to have breakfast in the lounge instead of the restaurant which...

Had a great weekend in this hotel! We got a January deal for Dinner, Bed, and Breakfast. The food was good, the hot tub was great, and the bar within the hotel was nice! All in all it was good value for money. We had a few issues- on arrival we were given a room with a dog bed in...

This hotel was a great disappointment. We asked for an upgrade room with a view of the sea, this cost £25.00. The view of the sea through a very small window was the only positive aspect of the room. Our room was at the top of two flights of very steep stairs with no sign of a lift. The room...

Good hotel but in need of a bit of an upgrade, and it's a bit of a maze. The lift is a long way from reception, the bedroom could do with more up to date furniture. However, the place was spotlessly clean, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was fab!

You only get what you pay for and so as this was a budget new year break we were expecting mediocre. , The dance floor was tiny and entertainment average but the food was good and the hotel was clean and at a good location.
